April 29th, 2019
Shplifting Prevention Gate

Shoplifting significantly impacts a business. Excessive shoplifting can even result in a business’s failure! Though shoplifting prevention methods may seem initially expensive, they end up saving the company a great deal of money. It is important to implement product security methods to reduce the amount of shoplifting that occurs in your business.

Gates, Towers, and Antennas

Gates, towers, and antennas are placed at entryways to retail stores. These gates are capable of detecting anti-theft tags and labels. The gates will alert you when an individual attempts to take a product that contains an activated anti-theft label. Multiple units may be required when the entryway is particularly large. It is important to ensure that your gate’s detected frequency matches the frequency that your anti-security tags emit.

Shoplifting Prevention Accessories

There are many accessories that can help prevent shoplifting. Pins for tags, detachers for removing hard tags, and more accessories are available to ensure the effectiveness of your product security measures.

Hard Tags and Labels

Hard tags consist of a plate and a pin. They emit a frequency that will set off anti-theft detectors. These tags are typically used on clothing or other apparel items, because they involve attaching the tag to a material that can be easily pierced. Labels essentially perform the same functions as hard tags. They are used more often on solid products, such as CDs, DVDs, or other electronic products.

Deactivators

Deactivators are most commonly placed at cash registers. They are used to deactivate anti-theft tags, allowing the labeled product to leave the store freely. The use of a deactivator is necessary to differentiate between purchased product and stolen product.

Shoplifting prevention measures are necessary to protect your business. Significant product loss can be incredibly damaging to any business. To learn more about the ideal product security measures for your business, contact us today!

Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Paper Folder

April 8th, 2019

There are many kinds of paper folders, so determining the right one for you can be difficult. There are several factors that will affect the ideal paper folder for your company and your needs. Additionally, there are many benefits to the use of a paper folding machine.

Benefits of a Paper Folder

Using a paper folding machine can help you save time and money. It is a simple, easy to use machine. Manually folding high-volumes of paper can be incredibly tedious and time consuming. Obtaining a paper folding machine can help you increase your overall productivity and will allow you to spend your time on other, more important things.

Type of Paper

It is important to examine the kind of paper you are using now, as well as the kinds of paper you may be using in the future. Regular, thin paper can be easily handled by friction feed paper folders. These machines use friction feed wheels to pull the paper through the fold plates. However, thick sheets of paper or glossier varieties may require air feed paper folders. As the name would imply, these machines use suction to grab the paper making them the better choose for glossy or slick paper.

Necessary Volumes

Some paper folding machines are designed only for occasional folding. Other machines are designed for more consistent folding of paper. Your company’s necessary paper folding volumes will determine the ideal paper folding machine for you. It is important to ensure that you choose a paper folding machine that matches your paper folding volumes.

Space/Mobility

The amount of space available for your machine may impact the right paper folding machine for you. Limited space will affect the appropriate type of paper folding machine. Additionally, if you need a paper folding machine that can be moved, you will need a paper folding machine with mobile capabilities.

Type of Folds

The necessary type of fold will also affect the ideal paper folding machine for you. You may need a machine that is able to perform a single fold, double fold, accordion fold, or many other varieties of folds. You will need to ensure that your paper folding machine is capable of performing all of your required fold types.

Laminators are practical investments that are able to protect your documents and give them a polished appearance. Knowing the differences between laminating machines can help you choose the appropriate machine for you. The two most common types of lamination machines are roll laminators and pouch laminators. Each machine has its individual advantages and is ideal for different uses.

Roll Laminators

Roll laminators use rolls of film to laminate materials. They are useful for larger items, like banners or signs. They also can be used to laminate multiple smaller items at the same time. They are able to laminate materials that may be in odd sizes or shapes. Roll lamination machines help increase productivity because they are faster than pouch laminators. These machines are ideal for large materials or higher volumes of lamination. They are often used in copy centers, print shops, and schools.

Pouch Laminators

Pouch laminators use laminating film in a pouch format. You insert the desired document into the pouch and run it through the machine. These machines are exceptionally easy to use and are frequently used for photographs or standard sized documents. The initial lamination machine tends to be less expensive than a roll laminator, but the film is slightly more expensive. This makes pouch lamination ideal for lower volumes of lamination. Pouch lamination machines tend to be portable, which makes them especially convenient. They are commonly used for small businesses, personal use, photography studios, schools, and churches.

What Packaging Machine is Right For Me?

January 23rd, 2019

As you enter into the new year, you may want to consider obtaining a packaging machine. Properly packaging products prior to storage can help protect them from damage. Shrink wrap is also useful in keeping products clean and goes a long way toward preventing theft. Here at ABC Office, we offer a wide selection of packaging machines to serve all of your packaging needs.

I-Bar Sealers

I-Bar Sealers

I-bar sealers use a single bar to cut film around a product. These machines are ideal for low to mid volumes of packaging. They tend to complete the process in just two passes. After the product is wrapped, heat is applied to shrink and seal the surrounding film. I-bar machines are capable of wrapping oddly shaped packages, which makes them perfect for a wide array of packaging needs.

Shrink Wrap L-Bar Sealers

 

L-Bar Sealers

L-bar sealers use two bars, in an L-shape, to wrap the product. This helps speed up the packaging process significantly. Packaging is usually completed in just one pass. The L-shape is useful for larger volumes of packaging, because it is a particularly efficient packaging method.

Direct Heat & Impulse Bag Sealers

 

Direct or Impulse Heat Sealers?

There are two types of heating systems used with packaging machines: direct heat sealers and impulse heat sealers. Direct heat sealers use a constant heat. This helps them seal thicker materials. They must be used carefully due to the extreme concentration of heat.

Impulse heat sealers use impulses of electricity. These pulses heat up and seal a bag quickly. These types of sealers heat up and cool down extremely quickly. There is little risk of burning the film with this method. The ideal heat sealing system depends on the type of material you use for your packaging. Impulse heat is better for thinner materials, while direct heat is often ideal for thicker types.

No matter what your packaging needs are, we have the perfect machine for you. We have both I-bar and L-bar sealers, heat guns, shrink wrap materials, full system packaging machines, heat tunnels, and more.
